There are no DoDDS schools at NAS Pensacola or any nearby installations.

Currently, in Escambia County Florida, there are 35 elementary schools, 9 middle schools, 7 high schools, 19 alternative schools, and 3 PATS Centers. All schools in Escambia County Florida are accredited by the state. Bus service is provided to students who live in the district of their assigned school. Not all schools offer "Before/After" school programs, so make sure you check with the school your child will be attending. All schools have a sports program, but each school has some varation/participation requirements in their respective programs - physicals are required before a student can participate in a sports program.

To register newcomers or children entering kindergarten, call the school you believe your child will attend, schedule an appointment and then take along the following at the appointed time: evidence of birth and up-to-date immunizations, Florida health card showing that the child has had a physical exam within the past year, proof of residency such as your water bill in the parent's name, and the child's social security number or card.

Students living one (1) or more miles from school are provided with school bus transportation. Special wheelchair transportation is available for handicapped children.
